And what is that?
Yes , a dinky mobile!
Made in about 15 minutes, with a couple of wooden keychains, 3 little colourful cloth elephants from Thailand, a card tag; some curtain rings and string.
The little things hang on a string tied between two windows. The string too is recycled. Its the yellow ‘thaali kair‘ which forms part of the little take home packet of ‘manjal-kumkum-mirror-kair’ on puja days. I know people might think this is a horrible use for the string but what does one do with a lot of packets piling away?
Now that Advaith needs something to look at while he is on his back – at Coimbatore last week, he was fascinated by the fans – we had to come up with something fast. And this homemade mobile keeps him happy for now.
